Any coffee lovers out there?? Do you ever sigh after that first sip of joe in the morning like I do? Does anything taste better? (with the exception of red wine after dinner?) I love my coffee pretty bold (like my wine) with a nice splash of Italian Sweet Cream in it.
I created this card for The Paper Players PP246 Sketch Design Challenge.
The design was inspired by an awesome card I saw done by Paula Sievers at Stamping with Paula. I don’t often use Designer Series Paper, but I loved how Paula framed and layered it and then cut out the coffee cup and embellished the cup holder with chevron.
I have been wanting to use the StampinUp Perfect Blend Stamp Set and thought it would be so fun to put a lipstick mark on the cup like us ladies get so often. Can you relate?
I had another stamp set from Fiskers with this sentiment on and the coffee beans that I thought complemented it and went well with the sketch challenge theme. Some Gorgeous Grunge “coffee splatters” added just the right finishing touch.
I’d love to give this card away to one of you lovely “lifeinbetweeners” out there. Leave a comment with your favorite coffee brand, flavor, shop, or how you like your morning java to be entered into a random drawing to win this card. I’ve left the inside blank so you can write your own special thank you message to the person you choose to send it to. (Winner will be drawn Sunday, 5/31/15.)
Cheers & Happy Friday Hugs,
